CBC Music's Hockey Night in Canada Song Quest contest kicked off this week. We're looking for the next great hockey song — a song that celebrates what hockey is all about and can hype up a team and an arena full of fans.
To help find out what gets players pumped up before a game, we asked a bunch of NHL stars for their picks. Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Patrick Kane, Shea Weber, Martin Brodeur and more told us what gets them going.
There was also a Maple Leaf who's into Florence and the Machine, a St. Louis Blue who digs Matisyahu and Carolina Hurricane who told us about the team's musical curse.
But the biggest trend we spotted was that the league has got a whole lot of country music fans who are suffering through some pre-game techno. Check them all out in the gallery above.
